Work before sitting in front of the computer!

How often have you said this word to your children. Before I really got addicted to surfing the net or rather mylotting, I often see my kids sitting hours in infront of the computer either chatting or playing games soon after returning from schools. It is made worse during school holidays. They would rather be in front of the computer then going through their school assignments or revising their lessons. I would tell them to please study first, or help me in clearing up the mess in the house. I didn't realize that I am now doing exactly as what they were doing, sitting in front of the computer endlessly without realizing that I have neglected my housework. The laundry is not done, the floor has not been swept and mopped and rushed cooking when everyone starts complaining of being hungry. Can you imagine how the net has changed our routine and demanded most of our time which should otherwise be utilized in a more fruitful ways. But how could I not be drawn to mylot when practically it takes up most of my surfing time. The magnetic force of mylot has over powered me. It is so addictive that I am here even before doing other things. Do you sometimes do likewise? Are you strict with your daily schedule and do mylot only after all your household chores are completed?

I know what you are saying...LOL, I have a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old, so I dont have the problem of having them sit in front of the computer as much but I decided this year to be the year to earn money will at home, since I am a full time mom... and we could really use extra money since I no longer work outside the home... well I have been on the computer alot more since January and I found mylot on January 2... and havent left it since it seems... I am pretty good about getting up and getting my son to school, coming home and running through my daily chores somewhat and then getting online for an hour before I have to pick up my son from school... which he only has half a day... then when he gets home I am back online again until about 4, then start dinner and any quick straightening I have to do before hubby gets home ...and then after the kids are in bed I am back online again....LOL but I am looking at it like a part time job, it is at my leisure, and I am making money for it... so if I worked outside the home then I would need a babysitter and take out food everyday......so this way is much better. I am home with the kids, bringing in a little extra and the house is not so neglected. happy mylotting!!!!

Well, like you I am also trying to earn some money here. I am a housewife and I need the money so badly to pay for the internet connection while enjoying the usage of this internet. I can see you are well in control of your time. It is time well planned and no area of your daily routine is neglected. That is what it really means to be able able to gain control of both worlds. Thanks for coming to my post.

That is the beauty of mylot. The unknown meet the unknown and start sharing a lot of light moments together for the world to see. And I appreciate your views for the same reason why I am here. You make me happy seeing you giving me the first smile this morning. Thanks for for being there when I needed you most. LOL

In the very starting I was like you,giving all my free time to mylot and it was addicting.But I didn't neglect my regular duties.Only at leisure times I did mylot and that too was addicting.Such was the power of mylot,dragging us inside.So,be sure to mylot only at free times after completing all your house hold chores.That will help you better.Cheers!
